That Kind of Beautiful
(Luke Laird/Hillary Lindsey/Gordie Sampson)

Have you ever been flying down a long, country road
With the windows wide open and the sun rushing in
Have you ever sat staring at shoreline all night
Don’t wanna blink your eyes thinking man, this is it

And the last thing you think about is leaving
And you can’t believe you’re seeing what you’re seeing

Chorus
She’s that kind of stop you right in your tracks
Knock you out just like that
Something you just can’t explain
That kind of blow your mind every time
Thought that you’d never find
She’s that kind
She's that kind of beautiful

She’s like that feeling you get on a Sunday
Forgiveness when you need it the most
Like that little girl singing every single word
With a big smile in the front row

Wanna stand so close you can feel it
Yeah, you’re wishing that the whole world could see it

Repeat Chorus

Once you’ve held on, you won’t remember where you’ve been
Just like a song, you want to sing again and again

Repeat Chorus


Believe
(Shawn Colvin/Josh Leo)

Five-year-old Superman got a beach towel cape
And he thinks he can
So he takes a dive off the chicken coop
Red behind and a broken foot
Daddy said I hope you learned your lesson good
Yes sir, next time I’m gonna wear the Superman boots

Go on, give it a try
Go on, give it a try

Red rhinestones and a Silvertone
Opry playing on the radio
He says one day I’m gonna be on that stage
Spends all his time practicing
Gets a big break and it all begins
Now he waiting in the wings and Porter’s calling out his name

Chorus
Believe
You can fly, you can sing
Take a leap, spread your wings
Believe
Have a little faith little trust
Little luck little love and dream
Whatever you want
But you’ve gotta believe

Go on, give it a try
Go on, give it a try
Go on, give it a try
Go on, give it a try

Her mama says its wasting tips in an all-night diner
Babies, boys and black eyeliner
It’s a woman’s life, it ain’t rocket science
She set her sight on the Ivy League
Got a full free ride and a PhD
Now she’s down in Houston and she’s one of NASA’s finest

Go on, give it a try
Go on, give it a try

He’s 91 she’s 85
Said by God we’re still alive
Let’s go stepping out before cashing in
Take the Cadillac down to the Broken Spoke
Do the ole two-step and cotton-eyed joe
Just like the South they’re gonna rise again

Second Chorus
Believe
You can fly, you can dance
Take a leap, take a chance
Believe
Have a little faith little trust
Little luck little love and dream
Whatever you want
But you’ve gotta believe

Good things come to those who will believe
So believe

It's life (it's life)
Give it a try (a try)
You’re gonna see
Whatever you want
Whatever you dream
If you believe

Go on, give it a try
Go on, give it a try
Go on, give it a try


You can fly, you can sing
Take a leap spread your wings
Believe
Have a little faith little trust
You can fly, you can dance
Take a leap, take a chance
Believe


Belongs To You
(Dave Berg/Rivers Rutherford/Tom Shapiro)

I wasted so much time believing that in this life
You try to get all you can take
When all along what I’ve been needing
Was to find just one good reason
To give myself, really give myself away

Chorus
Every smile that lights my face
Every teardrop, every trace
Every secret hidden place
Belongs to you
Anything that’s good in me
All I ever hope to be
Every drop of every dream
Belongs to you

You know the me that I remember
Always thought you had to keep it all inside
You get in trouble being tender
So you never say surrender
But it took you to finally prove me wrong

Repeat Chorus

I’m letting go, I’m letting go now
Of everything I’ve ever held onto

Every place I’ve ever been
Every chance I’ll get again
Every secret every sin
Belongs to you
Anything that’s good in me
All I ever hope to be
Every drop of every dream
Belongs to you
It all belongs to you


I Love This Road
(Brad Mates/Tommy Lee James)

There’s a long long stretch of highway
Here in front of me
It just seems to keep on winding
As far as I can see
Sometimes these wrong turns are sweet mysteries
Sometimes they take us where we’re meant to be

Chorus
I love this feeling of freedom running through my veins
Been too long at the crossroads waiting for the light to change
Even if it takes forever and I never find out where it goes
Heaven knows I love this road
I love this road

These days become a lifetime
It happens way too fast
You miss what’s ‘round the corner
If you just keep looking back
Sometimes it feels like you can’t find your way
Sometimes all you have to go on is faith

Repeat Chorus

Wind at my back, the sun on my shoulders
Pushing me, moving me a little bit closer
Sometime a little trust is just enough to take you there

Repeat Chorus

I love this road, I love this road
I love this road, I love this road

Sometimes these wrong turns are sweet mysteries
I love this road, I love this road


Livin' It Up
(Marty Dodson/Jimmy Yeary/Jason Sellers)

Ain't good for your soul to stay on cruise control
And let the good times pass you by
It's been way too long, since we carried on
So let's get off this painted pony ride
Hop a fence, chase the wind to the wilder side start

Chorus
Livin' it up, throwin' it down, here we go
Layin' it back, spinnin' it round, vertigo
Takin' it in, shakin' it out
Keepin' it real, keepin' it loud, give me some
Gettin' it on, gettin' it now, here we come
Life is a blast, ain't it about
Livin' it up

C’mon let's raise the roof, light that party fuse
Set it off and burn this mother down
Slam it into gear, do it up in here
Get all crazy like we own this town
If you're in, say you're in, let me hear you now
  
Repeat Chorus

Livin' it up, throwin' it down
Layin' it back, spinnin' it round
Life is a blast, ain't it about

Repeat Chorus


Your Last
(Lisa Carver/Luke Laird)

What if you knew it was your last cigarette
Would you take it down slow and savor it
Would your roll it on your tongue, scared to let it go
Then hold it in your chest cause you know you’d be missing it
Before it’s even secondhand smoke

Chorus
Sometimes the stars line up, sometimes the world stands still
Sometimes the things you love the most you forget to feel
What if the time that got away had a way of coming back
And telling you hold on
This’ll be your last

I was lying there awake with your back against my chest
That alarm clock went off and ruined it
Just another Wednesday morning, you said just five minutes more
But it was pour the coffee, pass the toothpaste, quick kiss on the cheek
Before you walked out the door

Repeat chorus

I would’ve turned you around
I wouldn’t have let you go
Oh baby, i just didn’t know

Repeat Chorus


Life Down Here
(Brad Mates/Josh Leo/Tim Nichols)

Big blue ball floatin’ in space
Let’s get a little better look at this place
Move a little closer, water and land
Zoom on in, you’re gonna see a man

There’s gonna be a girl, there’s gonna be a truck
There’s gonna be a road where they get stuck
Bring it on in, you can see ‘em smile
There in the glow of the radio dial

Same story happenin’ everywhere
From Tulsa, Oklahoma to the Russian Red Square

Chorus
It’s the life down here
It’s the moment it’s the truth
It’s the jumping into love’s wild frontier
It’s the thrill of the ride
It’s the upside of life down here

Telescope on, pan to the east
Take a little look right around Greece
Boy and a girl, see what they’re doing
Steamin’ up the windows down by the ruins

Lookin’ at the stars, lookin’ at the moon
Lookin’ back down on me and you
So many more just like us
Findin’ that one and fallin’ in love
  
It’s everywhere, in every heart
It’s universal and the very best part

Repeat Chorus


The Extra Mile
(Bonnie Baker/ Paul Sikes)

It hurts to walk this gravel road
It’s hard to find and overgrown
You will see how much I’m worth
When you get passed the rocks and dirt
Come on walk with me
I’m the extra mile

When you do you’re gonna fall
And wonder why you walked at all
Young and weary and want to stop
Cause every hill takes all you got
Come on walk with me
Oh, I’m the extra mile

I’m that smile you give a stranger
When you’d rather turn your head
I’m that book you read your children
When you’d rather be in bed
I’m forgiveness that you give
When you don’t think you can
Forgive somebody one more time

At the end there’s no parade
Just you and me to celebrate
How far you’ve come by choosing me
How you ignore those tired feet
Come on walk with me
Oh, I’m the extra mile

I’m that sacrifice you make for someone you don’t know
I’m that teardrop for the soldier you read about at home
I’m that love you give somebody that doesn’t give it back
Come on, walk with me a while
Oh, I’m the extra mile
Oh, I’m the extra mile
Yeah

Being more than what you see
Takes all of you and one of me
Come on walk with me
I’m the extra mile
I’m the extra mile

Oh, I’m the extra mile
Oh, I’m the extra mile
Baby, I’m the extra mile


Too Much
(Brad Mates/Danick Dupelle/Keith Follese/Adrienne Follese)

I've seen sweet temptation
And I've tried moderation
And I've learned how to walk that line
Cause I’ve found out the hard way
The price ain’t worth what you pay
Cause in the end those things you do
Right or wrong they come right back to you

Chorus
Too much beer will make you drunk
Too much sun will burn you up
Too much Las Vegas and you’ll be pushing your luck
Too much food will make you fat
Too much speed will make you crash
Baby when it comes to your love
I just can’t get too much 

She's my last addiction
The one fix I can’t kick
Single shot or double dose
It ain’t enough but what a way to go 

Repeat Chorus

I've been hammered and I hit the ground
And I've staggered my way around
And I've stumbled till I fell down
So I know
Yes I know

Repeat Chorus

I can't get too much
I can't get too much
I can't get too much
Too much ain't never enough of your
Too much can't get enough of your
Too much ain't never enough of your
Sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet love


That Was Us
(Danick Dupelle, Brad Mates, Dave Berg, Mike Mobley)

There’s an old abandoned warehouse on the way into town
Broken out glass still lays on the ground
That 69 Buick’s still stuck in the field
Some back seat stories in those rusted out wheels
And there’s Joe’s Mini-Mart, man that poor guy has seen
His share of shoplifters and fake IDs
There’s a crop of new freshman running Coach Riley’s plays
He’s a madman with a whistle, yeah he’ll blow it in your face
That high school gym has a banner on the wall
A trophy in a case, yeah the plaque says it all

Chorus
That was us, havin’ fun
Who says youth is wasted on the young
Glory days come and go
So we just made the most
Of the years that we call growing up
That was us

Between rivalries and our hometown pride
Sits Delmar’s Diner on the county line
One wrong word and our fists would fly
After football games on a Friday night
Cops didn’t bother to wait for a call
They just showed up ready for a small town brawl

Repeat Chorus

Alcohol on your breath
Mama worried to death
Muscle cars breaking hearts
Even some of them ours
Petty and Strait on the same cassette tape
Falling in love or in lust
That was us

Repeat Chorus
